Went for a Christmas day ride to test it out and it's awesome.

Suspension is very supple and it gobbles and eats up everything. I have to say that I like how this bike rides than the IH Sunday I replaced. Perhaps the IH Sunday wasn't for me (I like to plow than to finesse). Perhaps the same reason why I replaced my Commencal Supreme DH with the IH Sunday.

I felt at home with the Yeti 303 on the first run down. Reminds me of the Foes DHS Mono I had two seasons back. They actually do ride alike!

That's a real sweet-looking bike. Also, way to give every imaginable lit bit of information about it. It really interests me that you specify tire pressure so specifically. Is that exactly-two-psi difference something you insist upon?

Thanks. Yes that's exactly how I want my tire pressures are set-up. I do pump them up to 30psi front / 35psi rear on rocky dry fast open sections.

Kinda look too tech-geekie but I've been doing this since my racing days. Give's me an idea on how my bike feels and how to set-up a new bike when I get a new one.

look like a good ride.

the tech inside of me though has to say something to you though. get ride of the stem or the h-bar spacers or the h-bar. the setup that you have now is creating a large amount of stress in the "bend" of the h-bar and might end up causing it to break. just a thought

oh yeah btw "lucky bastard"

Thanks. I think it's better since the clamping force is distributed to wider area so I don't need to torque the bolts as much (only torqued it to 50 in-lbs). The clamp/spacer is not in the S bend area so I don't see why it would create stress. Perhaps you can enlighted me?

is that two computers on your bike i see?....and a picture of your family?
Yep those are two computers and my family pic. A wireless bike computer on the fork crown and a lap timer on the handlebar.

Sick bike !
I'm guessing at 45# weight it doesn't feel heavy unless it's flat & pedally?
It only feels heavy lifting it, and surprisingly it pedals very well for a 45-pounder. To be honest, I felt that it pedals better than the IH Sunday I had previously (which I never really gotten used to riding).

I got a 575 would love to have a 303.
Unless your in Canada get rid of that decal
Awesome bike, congrats
Yes I am in BC, Canada...hence the maple leaf.
